⛅ Unlock the secret behind product innovation

By Susan Zimmerlee

What’s the secret behind the innovative products you use daily?

For many of the products you use every day it’s Teamcenter, the PLM leader. We power product innovation for companies around the globe.

Many customers consider Teamcenter such a competitive advantage, that they don’t want anybody to know they’re using it. But chances are, you came across a product today that was created with Teamcenter at its core. From the watch you put on in the morning, to the car you drive to work, or the pacemaker that keeps your loved one’s heart going strong, the plane you take to your favorite vacation destination. Even the device you’re looking at now or the technology behind it. Teamcenter enables companies to unlock the power of product innovation to create things that bring us new experiences, help us in everyday life, save our planet, keep us safe and so much more.

I’ve picked a few of my favorite customer stories here to share some extraordinary things companies are doing with Teamcenter behind their product innovation. 👇🏼
